laden's body. he then said, "we took more care of this than obviously bin laden took when he killed 3,000 people. he didn't have much regard for how they were treated, but that again is something that makes us different ." the president went on to say anyone who thinks bin laden did not deserve to decide, "needs to have their head examined." a large section of our country is under water tonight, or waiting for it to happen. flooding from the mississippi river and its tributaries have covered parts of six states. more than a thousand people were evacuated from their homes in memphis today. and down river everyone is waiting to see what happens when the river crests and that is expected tuesday. some areas it will end at its highest level in 70 years. >> we're going to do what we can, you know. i mean, you have money invested in a camp and your heart is there and you want to save it. >> mississippi's governor has

10:09 pm
that kaine doesn't have many negatives. the only is may be a little too far to the left of the electorate and a negative maybe he served as chairman of the democratic national committee and that ties him too closely to obama. >> reporter: allen derailed his senate re-election bid in 2006, after calling his opponents indian american worker a word that is considered a racial slur in some countries. only 20% said that episode would be important to them according to a poll. and the poll showed him lacking behind with independent voters. >> perhaps some of that is residual off 2010. they moved quickly with a bad economy, with a tough economy as you know, they blame people who are in power. >> reporter: i asked kaine if he wanted president obama to campaign for him this time around. >> we have not talked about it,
10:10 pm
but he's going to take virginia seriously. it's a critical battleground, so i know the president will be here a lot when we get into the election cycle and i'm sure we'll be doing stuff together. >> reporter: all this is 18 months out, and of course anything can happen. there could be a crowded republican primary field, but the polls shows a allen leads the pack in that as well. >> thank you for that report.

the price you're paying at the pump might be cheaper this weekend. a surprise to a lot of us. it's thanks to the price of oil and commodity selloff. and aaa predicts we won't get high with the memorial day season around the corner. john townsend from aa is joining us. >> good to be with you. >> break it down. >> relief if you call one cent or two cents a relief. >> every little bit counts. >> right, every little bit counts. it's a harbinger of things to come. one of the interesting things that happened this week is crude prices dropped about 25%
10:15 pm
in value. and that's great news for consumers and motorists. the other thing i noticed the fact gasoline futures also dropped 25 cents. that should translate into about a 25-cent drop in the price of gas in the next two or three weeks. >> what's behind the drop? >> i think that many speculators and traders are saying the demand simply wasn't there. the reason is people have stopped driving and buying as much gas, and we've seen this drop in demand as a reaction to sky high gas prices. >> the national gas price average just shy of about four bucks a gallon. will that stick around for a while? >> we may hover there the next couple of weeks or so, and after a little while the prices will begin to drop and will reflect reality in the sense it has to reflect what's happening in terms of crude futures and gasoline futures and the fact demand simply isn't there. the other thing we have to keep
10:16 pm
a watch on, or keep a lookout for is the fact we're heading into the summer driving season, and we may see a spike for a little while on the radar screen, a little blip there, because demand would increase when people start driving more. that should settle down, too. >> speaking of the demand for you'll, do you think we as americans need to change the way we get fuel from the middle east? perhaps get more serious about alternative fuel? >> we've seen this before, and people lapse into what erroll flynn once called my wicked, wicked ways. we need a more energy efficient lifestyles and have ways of conserving energy as top of the
10:17 pm
mind issue. hope flywheel fully we'll change our ways. >> how unusual is that, 44 days of consecutive pain at the pump? >> the third largest streak in u.s. history. in april alone, what we paid for gasoline in this country, in this region, costs us almost $200 than it cost us three aprils ago. we were paying about $400 or about 113% higher than we paid two years ago. that drained a lot of budgets that had a devastating impact on household budgets, and our financial wherewithal and our sense of economic well-being. >> any anticipated driving numbers out on the roads as we head into memorial day weekend? >> it's kind of hard to say. we've been here before. we've seen the scenario before, and you have to go back to 2008
10:18 pm
when gasoline prices were this high and people didn't travel as much, throughout all of the five major travel holidays of the year. this may be a repeat. >> john townsend, thanks for coming in tonight. >> thank you, will. consumers are looking to make smart money moves, but are you better off buying a home or rent? >> reporter: small business owner carol currently rents a home in marin county. >> it just makes sense right now with the economy bottoming out, that i continue to rent. >> reporter: but she regularly meets with her agent. >> i think it depends on the deal. >> reporter: customers are often conflicted. >> i'll have a rental on the market and they're convinced they want to rent. we'll drop a hint like, should i buy? >> reporter: mortgage broker adam wise says though renting
10:19 pm
has been cheaper, the housing prices has changed that. >> when you compare rising rents relative to homes become more affordable with that combination, it's becoming a much more even playing field now. >> reporter: example, this $725,000 home. >> the rent would be at least $3,000 a month. >> reporter: if you buy -- >> you'll have a mortgage payment, number one. number two, you are going to have property taxes. that's going to be a new experience for a new homeowner. and you have to have insurance on the house. >> reporter: crunching the numbers and assuming a 20% down payment, the monthly mortgage, taxes and insurance come out to $3,945 a month. but-- >> some of those costs are offset with tax benefits. >> reporter: tax deductions effectively lower the payment to $3,045 a month, essentially the same as renting. >> there are ways in doing less than 20% down. >> reporter: just 3.5% down
10:20 pm
with a federally fha loan, but the final ajusted payment goes up by more than a third. more down payment, renting and buying are becoming comparable. >> i have to confess i am looking for my dream house. >> reporter: whether you decide to rent or buy will depend on two things. one, will your landlord take care of the repairs as you need them? and two, how much will your rent increases be? >> things to think about. >> decisions, decisions. a story that is sure to touch your heart. >> she's the miracle baby for two sisters. we're going to tell you why today is even more special for this family. stay with us.

10:24 pm
second annual mother's day luncheon at harbor light center in northeast. volunteers treated the mom to mania and pedis. well deserved pampering there. now to a story that is sure to touch your heart. two sisters found a way to beat cancer. >> and they brought a new life into the world in the process. tisha thompson has their story. >> reporter: there's something about sisters that's hard to explain. >> there aren't any words i could put together. >> reporter: for rita -- >> i would tell her, but she knows. >> reporter: and her sister, words reason really necessary. because they have isabella. 9-month-old isabella is babbling, starting to walk, and never seems to cry. >> i tell her every day, she's a miracle. >> reporter: a miracle, because if cancer had had its way,
10:25 pm
isabella wouldn't have been here. >> when they told me it was cervical cancer and you have to have surgery, the first thing was, i'm not going to be able to have a baby. >> reporter: just 25 years old, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. >> i have three kids of my own and i thought i was finished having kids. my youngest is 13 years old. so i was so upset about my sister's situation, and her condition and her being diagnosed with cancer. >> reporter: so at 42 years helped her sister through surgery, and then helped her have a baby. >> they were able to harvest eggs from her. it's her child, her baby. and i had the opportunity to carry it for her. >> reporter: after undergoing just one treatment, she was 8 months pregnant by the time rima was healthy enough to get married. >> i feel like i missed out on feeling her kick and all that stuff. i don't think about that now, because it's in the past and i have her now.
10:26 pm
>> reporter: she is now two years cancer-free and celebrating her first mother's day. >> amazing mother's day. yes. >> reporter: all because of that certain something sisters just can't seem to explain. tisha thompson, fox 5 news. >> that is one of the best stories i think i've seen in a while. >> i still can't believe the sister is 42 years old and the first try and it worked. >> just meant to be. >> meant to be. >> indeed. coming up, more insight into this weekend's development, concerns over bin laden's death. >> i had a chance to talk with a retired air force colonel this week getting his thoughts on the new video release. the unrest continues in other parts of the middle east. hundreds of arrests in syria. plus, more violence in egypt. an update tonight as anti- government protests rage on. ea
10:27 pm
10:28 pm
10:29 pm
10:30 pm
there are new images of osama bin laden, once the world's most wanted terrorist, now dead. officials released new footage seized in the raid six days ago. joining us now with military insight is retired u.s. air force colonel cedric laten. thank you for joining us this evening. >> good evening. great to be here. >> thank you. the new video shows bin laden in a way we've never seen him before. what do these images say to you about him outside the spotlight? >> well, i think what was interesting to me was the fact he lived a kind of spartan existence. everybody talked about his million dollar home. i think the home, i wouldn't have paid a million dollars for it, less put it that way. but he was caught in the middle of u.s. efforts to try to get him, and we saw the results of
10:31 pm
that. his existence was kind of rough in the years he was spending in abbottabad. but nonetheless, he was controlling things and i think the idea that he was not in control has proven to be false. >> he's tauted as a mastermind, and built up by his supporters as bigger than life, almost in a shriveled state. looks from my viewpoint weakened. does it help showing him in his true light? >> absolutely. it makes him seem much smaller than life instead of greater than life. it is one of those areas are all of a sudden we have a chance to, if not win the propaganda war outright, to at least score a major victory, and i think we're beginning to
10:32 pm
do that. >> how embarrassing is this video to pakistan? shows him again in pakistan for what seems to be a good amount of time. how would you assess the relationship between the u.s. and pakistan after this video has surfaced? >> the video and every aspect of this particular situation proves tremendously embarrassing for pakistan. and i would assess our relationship with them to be quite frankly, at a low point. it's a shame in many ways, because they could have probably done better police work, which is in essence an intelligence and police matter. if they didn't know, which i find hard to believe, it's a situation where their intelligence services and law enforcement have failed them considerably, and showing how weak that state really is. significantly embarrassing and i think from a u.s. diplomatic perspective, we have a lot of
10:33 pm
questions to ask them, and i think it's time we look how our relationship with pakistan should go forward, given the fact we are not done with the war on terror. >> one thing again this video shows is osama bin laden was still in charge. he was planning and plotting a mission even from his, at least visible weakened state. what do you say that this video shows he was still in charge? >> i think the video shows that and also some of the documents will show that as well. according to all the reports we've heard, they have gotten a treasure trove of documents, which for an intelligence analyst, that is the best thing you could possibly get. given that fact, the idea that he was somehow a figurehead has proven to be completely false. i think the fact we have decapitated the head of al- qaida, that makes a significant difference and really means
10:34 pm
that we are at this point gaining the upper hand in the war on terrorism. >> i certainly hope so. thank you so much for your time tonight. >> my pleasure. the focus has been on bin laden and the future of al- qaida. but there's still unrest in the middle east and north africa. religious violence is reaching a boiling point. in egypt, more protests. leyland vitter is here with a wrap. >> reporter: one of the big fears of the egyptian revolution has come true. violence breaking out in the country's capital with 10% of the population is cop tick christians. they marched to protest attacks against their holy site. overnight, planes roared through one of cairo's many churches, as muslims stormed the facility, nine people died,
10:35 pm
and hundreds were wounded, which brought in the army to try and bring back a fragile peace which existed between the two groups. the west is becoming fearful egypt will radicalize under the muslim brotherhood. they promise to hold elections by september. experts think the muslim brotherhood will take control of the country. to israel's north, syria continues its attack. amateur video shows a sniper round killing one man as he walked unarmed through the streets. syrian's president has faced protests. the syrian government says they'll continue to use tanks.
10:36 pm
three women were shot and killed as they stood in the highway and demanded the government release demonstrators. it is still impossible to get verifiable video or information out of syria. the country has expelled even typically friendly media organizations. maryland terps are in the market for a new coach after gary williams announced his retirement. >> does the team have a new leader tonight? lindsay murphy is in studio coming up with sports. mother's day not ending too badly. a few light showers. frontal system to the south of us. i'll have details later with your full forecast. stay with us.
